Beautiful location, across from Moonstone beach which is great for rock hunting. The inn itself is cozy, the rooms are large and the amenities are great--microwave, mini-fridge, fireplace. Staff is friendly and efficient. Our fireplace wasn't turning on and staff immediately took care of it and got it working. Delicious complimentary full breakfast bar (best if you get there early)--eggs,... More

We stayed at the Fog Catcher Inn on our way through from LA to San Francisco. Check in/out was quick and easy. Room was comfortable and large enough to accommodate 4 people, although minimal spaces for suitcases, but not a big issue for one night. Molton Brown products were supplied in the bathroom which was lovely after a long day... More

Great refurbished rooms, good service and good location. We hope they recycle all the paper and plastic plates and cutlery from the breakfast room. I get the impression that's how you have breakfast in central coastal US. I would stay here again though.

Stayed for 2 nights and had a nice stay. Overall it's a nice place to stay. The rooms are large, have good amenities in, and are clean. There are some nice touches such as the cute furniture design and the fire place. The rooms have all been refurbished recently. The location is great for highway 1 and access to the... More

We only booked one night on our drive from LA to San Francisco - I wished we had booked for longer. The area is so relaxing. I loved listening to the ocean all night. Our room was a little small but we were only in it to sleep so it was fine. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The complimentary... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in one of the single story rooms for four. The decor was lovely, Milton and brown toiletries in the bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful. Wine tasting on our first night. Breakfast was adequate for our needs. Location great for highway 1 and the beach. Lovely quiet spot. The road does pass behind the... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights enjoying the sight and sound of the Pacific right outside our ocean front windows. We walked every morning just across the street along the boardwalk pathway following the ocean - 3 mile out and back - all the while smelling the pine trees, seeing birds, squirrels, seals, flowers, tidal pools, sea urchins, etc....

We stayed here for one night on the way down to San Diego and loved it. The location is perfect or a beautiful ocean view. The room was comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. It seemed to be a bit expensive but after checking, it was on par with the other lodging in the area. All in all, it... More

Beautiful shingle clad motel style rooms, spacious with high ceiling and minimalist style. There is everything you could need including wifi, USB charge ports and a feature switch on 'real' gas fire. Match this with a friendly and efficient welcome, and a genuinely breathtaking setting overlooking the ocean and you couldn't wish for more - but if you do there... More

We just recently traveled the PCH from San Fran to San Diego and this is where we chose to stay after our leg through Big Sur. We were so happy with our choice. The Fogcatcher is so charming, and is in a beautiful location directly across from Moonstone Beach. THe rooms were immaculate, new updated and very comfortable. The details... More
